À propos de la Chanson
I didn’t realise ‘Gloomy Sunday’ wasn’t one of their tunes [The Associates] until I was invited to do a benefit concert with Joni Mitchell in California in 1997. I turned up at the rehearsal and couldn’t believe it when the orchestra played this really straight jazz version without the outrageous key change in the middle. I tried protesting that they were missing out the best part of the song, then it dawned on me that the Associates’ version was obviously a cover. I was disappointed because the original isn’t half as challenging.
